Deforestation and the nightmares it causes

Some 46-58thousand square miles of forest are lost each year—equivalent to 36 football fields every minute.

For example, in the Amazon around 17% of the forest has been lost in the last 50 years, mostly due to forest conversion for cattle ranching.

Deforestation comes in many forms, including fires, clear-cutting for agriculture, ranching and development

I got his info here: Go check it out!!!

An estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest — roughly the size of Panama — are lost each year, according to the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Tropical rainforests are targeted to cut down most of often

This is a before and after picture think about all the animals that were here..

   The problem deforestation is causing is: Animal extinction, floods (Mud slides as well), no shade, and the lack of trees all together. Trees can be used for so many endless possibility's that do not involve cutting them down or harming them!!! For example to see sights that are amazing, foods (fruit),


    18 million trees are lost each year. Deforestation problems are occurring throughout MO we have wiped out half of some forest. people are also killing plants and animals when the trees plummet to the ground.

    When we cut down trees we cause some animals and/or insects that we have might not even discovered to go extinct or a few of them to die.


    We are cutting down trees for our needs, we have cut down so many trees. It makes it seem as if we don't even care for the other animals. We cut down trees to make our big buildings, which to do that we need to cut down MORE trees (For the room) and that kills MORE animals. So what I am saying is our greed is killing trees, plants, animals we may have not even discovered.

         More than 155,000 square kilometers have been cleared for timber and other developments since 2000


    I wish that our world had "Tree Teams." witch means a team that goes around MO locating places that have little trees and they plant new trees to grow and produce fresh air. so doing this would be a win win because we would have not only fresh air but shade, fruit, habitats for animals and so forth!

     I would also like a designed area to where you can cut and also an amount you can cut! I believe this would be helpful due to the fact that tree cutters cut trees in forests that are known around MO. Also I would like a designed area because some tree cutters cut trees in protected areas. My point is to stop this ONCE AND FOR ALL!!!

Design (What i would do to help)

    I would go throughout MO trying to find and/or locate all tree cutters and teach them a valuable lesson (Not involving any physical fights).

    I would also try and plant all the trees and tell my family and friends to do the same!! So I would team up with my family and try and save all the trees and help them thrive in MO!! I would help all types of trees. I believe that all trees have the right to live but however I do know that we must cut down some trees. So that is why we should have a designed area! (I explained about that in the paragraph above). Trees should be a thing that is protected due to the fact that they are kinda like animals! For example there are different "breeds" (Different types of trees) in MO and i think they are ALL amazing cause if you think about it it's pretty cool that a TREE makes fruit that is so juicy and delicious! Trees can do so much for us and when we cut them down we lose all mind that they are ALIVE. I mean come on if you were a tree that would hurt right? So my point is to do whatever we can to save the trees in MO!!!

How it ends (Conclusion)

    Deforestation is killing several trees in MO and the only way to stop it is to stand up for the trees and be the lorax because if this continues we will have little trees and our world would be dull. So we must get up and do something about this major problem we are facing. So team up with neighbors friends and family and go and plant as many trees as you can plant! because trees won't grow themselves so we got to and we have to act fast. Even if it does take a long time for a tree to grow you are still making a huge difference in MO! So go out and SAVE THE TREES!!! Cause we humans are the only ones that started this problem so we have to fix it before it is to late.

    Here is a little song from the lorax to help YOU be the lorax and help out!

    And also remember Mr. O'hare has no idea what he is saying!
